En Alicia en el país de las maravillas, l. a. joven Alicia es transportada a través de una conejera a un mundo de maravillas y extravagancias.

Triunfos de los angeles imaginación y del ingenio, estas narraciones recrean un mundo de escenarios y criaturas insólitos, y ponen en entredicho todos y cada uno de los postulados lógicos en los que se basa nuestro mundo convencional.
